Logic at the Intersection of Algebra, Categories, and Topology (LIACT 2023)
Dates: 2 – 12 January 2023
Recent years have witnessed the emergence of powerful semantic tools for non-classical logics. These semantic methods draw from a web of mathematical formalisms at the intersection of ordered and universal algebra, topology, and category theory, and together provide a flexible and unifying framework for the study of logic across a host of domains. This research school serves as a broad introduction to this dynamic and quickly growing area of modern mathematical research, and places particular emphasis on this area’s deep interactions with and applications to computer science.
The school is sponsored by Centre International de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées and the European Union MOSAIC project, and will focus on these themes and will feature six interactive courses directed at graduate students and other early-career researchers from African nations. Each course will be taught by a top expert in the field, and feature guided work led by these world-renowned researchers.
The activities of the school will be held on the campus of the University of Johannesburg, and the program will feature open discussion time, panel presentations, and an excursion in addition to the courses.
